    New app icons on phone after Sevice books

    Wirelessly posted (Stormy 4)

    Well I was re sending my service books and noticed that I had to new icons. Which were cast song I'd and VZW Tones. Well I downloaded them and gave them a shot. Well VZW Tones let's u buy ring tones and ringbacktones. Starting around $1.99. Kind of pricey to me. But it works great. I didn't download anything cause I'm a broke man.lol then I loaded vzw songid
    . Its 1.1mb. So its pretty smooth app. Setting up was kind of off are had a bug are something. Will retry later. I didn't have a radio near me at the time but I will try in the morning. Ao has anyone else seen this pop up on your phone?

    Yes, I just noticed them on my home screen. I didn't update my service books, so it must have done it automatically.
    I really don't need them. You can't delete it, only hide them it seems.

    Unfortunately, it's impossible to delete them as they are provider related, not OS.

    Lucky me perhaps they haven't been pushed out to the west coast yet.

    Ok, I found out that there is no charge to use the VZW song id....unless you actually purchase the song.

    I figured out how to get rid of the icons if you want them gone. Options>Advanced>Servicebooks> then both are located at the top of the list, land on one then BB> delete and boom, gone adios amigos. Repeat for second icon and then your storm is no longer VZW branded without your permission. Yep I'm the guy who buys a new truck and promptly removes the dealers logo since I didn't get paid to advertise for them.
    When in doubt, pull the battery out!
